Knoxville historic homes receive award

The Historic Homes of Knoxville were honored by the Tennessee Association of Museums at the recent 2015 TAM Annual Conference held in Jackson, Tennessee.

The homes received an Award of Excellence for their collaborative brochure which provides information on each of the seven historic sites. The brochures are available at each of the seven sites and at the Knoxville Visitors Center. The Historic Homes were selected for this honor by a committee of museum professionals and TAM board members who evaluated nominees against museums of comparable budgets.

The Historic Homes of Knoxville is a successful partnership between seven historic homes that offer guided tours throughout the year.

The seven historic homes are Blount Mansion, Crescent Bend House & Gardens, Historic Ramsey House, James White’s Fort, Mabry-Hazen House, Marble Springs State Historic Site, and Historic Westwood.
